Meghan Markle's close friends and former colleagues recently stood by to defend the duchess, following bullying claims from a former palace staff.
Finally, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a chance to air their truths during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, after years in silence and reportedly silenced by the British monarchy.
However, many of the former "Suits" stars' friends and colleagues had shown support even before the interview aired after a new bullying accusation from a former palace staff surfaced in the media.

PATRICK ADAMS DEFENDS MARKLE
Markle's "Suits" co-star and good friend, Patrick J. Adams, also voiced his support for the expecting mother on Twitter, revealing the beautiful personality the former actress has.
According to the actor, Markle remained a kind and humble person even after she rose to fame in Hollywood and became a royal. Adams also called the British royal family "obscene" for their role in the bullying accusation.
"The Royal Family, who's [sic] newest member is currently GROWING INSIDE OF HER, is promoting and amplifying accusations of 'bullying' against a woman who herself was basically forced to flea [sic] the UK in order to protect her own family," he wrote.
By now, Markle realized who her close circle of friends are, including Adams and Mulroney. The Canadian actor previously shared his happiness that his on-screen partner moved to California.
She revealed that being behind the palace walls made her contemplate harming herself, to the extent that she could not be left alone.
Others who are part of Markle's close circle of friends are Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, Amal Clooney, Silver Tree, Janina Gavankar, Sarah Rafferty, and Markus Anderson.
MARKLE AND HARRY'S TRUTH
In Markle's recent tell-all interview, she revealed that being behind the palace walls made her have suicidal thoughts, to the extent that she could not be left alone.
Apart from being brought down by false reports, Markle also received no help from her new family. Upon going to what she called the "Institution" for help, they turned down her request to seek medical attention.

According to Markle, the seniors were afraid of the damage it would do to their image. She had many other shocking revelations in the CBS interview with Winfrey, which she was not paid to do.
